    Shaquille O'neal Retires From The NBA: He Wants To Be An NBA Analyst





    After 19 years of playing professional basketball in the NBA Shaquille O'neal announced yesterday, June 2 2011, that he's already retired from playing in the NBA. Shaq still wanted to win an NBA ring for the last time that's why he joined the Boston Celtics. Unfortunately they lost in the 2011 NBA Playoffs second round against the Miami Heat. His retirement year was cut short.

    Shaquille played for the Orlando Magic in his rookie season wherein he won the 1993 NBA rookie of the year award. He played 4 years with the Magic and then he afterwards signed as a free agent with the Los Angeles Lakers wherein he won three consecutive NBA Championships with Phil Jackson and Kobe Bryant. He decided to leave the Lakers for good after he had some arguments with Bryant. He landed to play for the Miami Heat in 2005. He was able to win the NBA 2005-2006 championship with Dwyane Wade. After that year, his career has declined due to injuries and old age. Since then. he went on to play for two different NBA teams including the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics, where he last played for.

    Steve Smith of NBA Game Time said that Shaq can choose to retire his jersey number in either of these three teams, Orlando, Miami and Los Angeles. Shaq has not yet announced where he would want his jersey retired. I believe that his jersey number deserves to be retired in the Los Angeles Lakers wherein he won 3 NBA world championships. Kobe can't disagree with this because I believe that he could not have won 3 straight rings without the help of Shaq.

    After his retirement, Shaq said that he wants to be an NBA commentator or at least an NBA Game Time analyst like Steve Kerr, Steve Smith and Charles Barkley. He said that he's ready to replace any of those former NBA players.
